USA vs CAN: America chased a record target, defeated Canada by 7 wickets in the opening match of T20 World Cup 2024


In the opening match of the T20 World Cup, Canada made one record and in the same match, America made another record and wrote the story of its glorious victory. In this way, a high scoring match was witnessed between the two teams making their debut in the T20 World Cup. While Canada, playing first, made 194 runs in 20 overs and became the highest scoring Associate Nation. At the same time, America chased a record target for the first time in T20 International. Before this, it had never chased a score as big as 195 runs in a T20 International match.

When America was given the target, it seemed difficult to cross it. When the first wicket of the USA team fell on the second ball, it seemed that they were under pressure. But then what the team's vice-captain Aaron Jones and Andries Goose did together changed the whole scenario of the match. The 131-run partnership between the two for the third wicket helped put the match in USA's bag.

Canada swept away by Aaron Jones' storm

Vice-captain Aaron Jones was the most successful batsman of the team, who scored an unbeaten 94 runs in just 40 balls, which included 10 sixes and 4 fours. During this, Aaron Jones' strike rate was 235. Aaron Jones, who finished the match with a six 14 balls earlier, also scored the fastest half-century for USA during his innings. He did this feat in just 22 balls with 6 sixes and 1 four.

Partnership of 131 runs at a run rate of 14.29

Aaron Jones not only made records in helping USA win, but what he did with his teammate Andries Goose was also unmatched. Both of them added 131 runs for the third wicket at a run rate of 14.29. Till date, no century partnership in the T20 World Cup has had such a high run rate. Andries Goose scored a blistering 65 runs in 46 balls.

America's batting isn't the only reason for Canada's loss!

Despite scoring a big score of 194 runs, the main reason for Canada's defeat was America's batting. Apart from this, there was also a mistake in fielding. The Canadian fielder missed many easy chances to catch the catch, due to which the match went in America's bag and it has made a great start to the T20 World Cup 2024 by winning the opening match.
